Wilderness Trail Distillery Plans 2nd Bourbon Release

We like our Bourbon aged and smooth and our BBQ slow-cooked and savory. Which is exactly why we are thrilled that Wilderness Trail Distillery can fill the bill for both when they have their second Bourbon release while hosting the KY State BBQ Festival September 7-9.

The Danville distillery’s first Bottled in Bond Bourbon release was a huge success and it is time for the second of the three releases this year. This release will be a wheated, Single Barrel, Bottled in Bond, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey and a wheated Small Batch, Bottled in Bond, Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey.

This special event coincides with the return of the KY State BBQ Festival held on WTD's 44-acre campus located in Danville. The weekend is all about enjoying the food created by seven celebrity pitmasters, shopping with a variety of vendors, and enjoying music by seven bands.

“Our Bourbon releases offer a traditional mature Kentucky Bourbon whiskey you would have found decades ago. It has the taste and nose of an mature Kentucky Bourbon — mellow nose with sweet fruity oak, caramels twisted with creamy vanilla nut and a touch of chocolate. Enjoying it neat, it finishes silky smooth and long and proofing down on the rocks brings out more expressions of smoother aromatics and a creamier mouthfeel finish. Being most of the releases are Single Barrels, the different expressions from the barrel have been a true joy to experience.” - Wilderness Trail Distillery

While you’re savoring the treats at the KY State BBQ Festival, please remember this event is a fundraiser for the Heart of Kentucky United Way. So, enjoy your Wilderness Trail Bourbon responsibly and support this great cause by coming out. Check for details.
